COSTA MESA, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Orange County Crush, a first year basketball team with the American Basketball Association, had their home opener tainted by a TicketMaster mistake.
The L.A. Times reported that team General Manager Kevin Copeland received and email on December 9 – the day of the team’s first game – that showed a $50 charge for a $10 ticket bought online at TicketMaster.com.
A statement released by the team said, “The Crush remains steadfast in its position that matters were not handled properly, ultimately resulting in the loss of Dennis Rodman and ESPN coverage, but the parties remain hopeful that a resolution can be reached without having to file a lawsuit. The parties are now engaged in discerning what the extent of the damages were and determining what can be done to resolve the matter.”
The Crush expected to play their home season at the Bren Events Center at UC Irvine while awaiting their permanent home at the Orange County Fairgrounds to be built, but due to the TicketMaster error they have postponed all home games. “Until this thing is resolved, we are looking for a temporary home to finish the season,” Copeland told the Times. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
